    What type of incubator?
    What temp are you running?
    How much humidity during incubation?
    Do you candle the eggs to see if they are developing?

    If all goes well they should hatch.

    Still air you want temp to be 101 to 102 taken at the top of the eggs.

    Humidity is too high during incubation. Should be no more than 50. I prefer to run mine 20 to 35 during incubation and raise to 70 plus for lockdown.

    Did any of the eggs develop when you candled them.
